TOMAmeter February 2016 – Awards Season Dominates


toma 1

February brought along with it an eventful awards season, with the Oscars on ABC and the Grammys on CBS among the top television programs for the month, at #7 and #8 in the TOMAmeter respectively. Also near the top of the rankings was coverage of Super Bowl 50 between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos.

Other key movers in the month of February included Lucifer, which debuted on January 25th, too late to make the January rankings, but able to attain the #14 spot here, and the return of AMC’s Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Call Saul (which premiered on February 15th), at #18.

Following its midseason premiere on February 14th, AMC’s The Walking Dead maintains its #1 spot in the rankings for the third straight month, followed by CBS’ The Big Bang Theory. Meanwhile, several programs from January dropped out of the top twenty, including Netflix’s Making a Murderer and HBO’s Girls. Also just on the precipice of the top twenty this month was Netflix’s Fuller House, which was #23 overall for the month, but attained the #14 spot among respondents in the 13-34 age range.

Three networks led in the TOMAmeter in February: ABC, CBS, and FOX each had four programs apiece in the top twenty.
